Any chance this code could be leveraged for other parts of the world? For 
example, I have three sources defined (in the UK), OTA, Freeview (FTA only) and 
NTL/Telewest/Virgin cable (a subset). These three get their info from the 
uk_grab_rt script. Be useful to just download this once (and unload the Radio 
Times servers, which must run in the same way as DD's do in the States).
